Black Ops Cold War Zombies Story
The story of Zombies in Black Ops Cold War will get rebooted, but it’s featuring characters and Easter eggs from other Call of Duty games. Grigori Weaver from the original Black Ops leads the CIA team Requiem, exploring a bunker that has nods to the Nacht der Untoten map from Call of Duty: World at War. Requiem skirmishes with the Soviet force Omega Group while searching the bunker, which is seeking to unlock the secrets behind some supernatural events occurring worldwide.
You’ll interact with various characters in both Requiem and Omega Force, including a KGB mole named Sam. Activision promises that the story of Zombies will slowly unfold in unexpected ways over time.
